Detailed Commentary

$199 at www.aabreecoffee.com.  I bought one for $140 which had been returned.  No problems with it after 2 months of operation.  I run about 4-5 cups per day through it.  I think this machine is an excellent one for the money.  If you are looking for your first machine and don‘t want to invest too much, look no farther.  This thing has plenty of features not found in more expensive models.  Yes it has a plastic case and you won‘t overly impress your friends with it, but you can make excellent coffee with this thing.  It will make espressos, cappucinos, lattes, crema coffee, or provide hot water quickly and relatively easily.  The steamer has a position for cappucinos and another for lattes which opens up more steam ports.  Definately the best part about this machine is how well it steams milk.  I can steam enough milk for two lattes in about 2 minutes.  It also warms up very quickly.  Turn it on, wait 50 secs, run a shot of water through the steamer, and you‘re in business.  Completely heated up in 1 minute.  If you have any questions or need some tips, email me.
